Our Pumpkin

Last fall we went on a fun field trip. They sent us home with a pumpkin seed planted in a small cup for each of the boys. Two of the three seeds sprouted and started to grow. I replanted those that sprouted in the dirt in front of our house. I didn't really give them much thought again. Every once in a while, I would check to see if anything was happening. I never saw anything, so I eventually stopped checking.
A couple weeks ago, Rich began trimming in front of the house in the area where we had planted the pumpkin seeds. Yesterday, I went out and noticed these tiny pumpkins laying in a pile of dirt just where we had planted them. They actually had started growing! Had Rich known that there were pumpkins growing ... he never would have trimmed in that particular place!
So, it was exciting for us to see these tiny pumpkins ... but we were a little bummed that we won't get to see them grow any larger.


  1. So cool! Did they take up a lot of space?

  2. Oh my goodness! Way to go!!! Maybe you'll have to plant some more pumpkin seeds at your new place:)
